We haven't had but one big family reunion in the last 10 years, but my father was very big on filling an entire loop with extended family from all over the US. Those were good times. He was an incredible event planner and would have enough yard games and find activities to everyone to enjoy that everyone had a good escape from the day to day hum drum. We had from Great Grands, Grands to Parents and us kids under one shelter for our potluck one year. Does anyone else do this??? I sure miss him and those days. I can't seem to pull off the crowd he did. Maybe because of the times being what they are today.
